Pocket Silhouettes

Good Evening!

Did you notice I changed my blog name? I did! I have changed it now to

I am hoping it will bring in more paper crafters in Montreal who are just learning about rubber stamping but may not realize just how amazing and affordable our Stampin' Up! products are !

Thanks to my wonderful husband, I have just learned how to put my website across my photographs! Yeah!!!

This card is made using the Pocket Silhouettes Stamp set. It is such a cute stamp set I often use in my classes! Here is a pic of the full stamp set and another sample. This one is NOT retiring on June 30th! Phew!!!

Update on Rubber Stamping Classes

I have received numerous emails this week asking when my July class list will be available. My husband and I are working out our family holidays, and I will post the classes later this week. Stay tuned! :)

Happy Stamping,

Palmar and his Guinea Pig

As some of you know, my son Palmar has Autism. He is such an amazingly, wonderful human being - always so full of life and has so much to share with the world. I adore him with every fiber of my being.

Fortunately for our family, prior to having children, I educated myself at several Universities to work with special needs children and the elderly. I started my career with the elderly, but later switched to special needs children - specifically kids and teens with ASD.

When my husband and I were blessed with our first child, little did we know at the time that he would have Autism. I thank God everyday that I have my education and knowledge to work with him. I did have to take a few years off working with my clients, to work solely with him. Especially when it was imperative to teach him language - as he had a severe receptive and expressive speech delay. He has come such a long way from that little boy who had no form of communication!! Those not trained in the field (either professionally or through being a parent of a special needs child) have difficulty seeing Palmar's Autism when they first meet him. It takes a few visits before you realize - hey he ALWAYS talks about his Lego "products", Lego Indiana Jones and now Lego Star Wars. Note - his special interests do change, by seem to cycle over 6-8 month periods.

All this to say, when I uploaded these pics from my camera yesterday, of Palmar and his guinea pig Gisele I was in awe. They were taken after his first day at his new school. He was nervous and stressed, but as you can see from these pics, Gisele was able to bring him such joy. I have a series of pics of them playing on our front lawn together - including Gisele's great escape! But, since I've typed and typed, I'll simplify it to just these.

Thanks for reading thus far.

I hope Palmar made you smile today!


P.S. If you have any questions about Autism - feel free to ask :) It is by far one of my favourite topics!!

Pretty Amazing Stamp Set is retiring

Good Morning!!

I received an email over the weekend from someone new to Stampin' Up! who was wondering what all the fuss is about when I talk about the Last Chance List or the Retiring List.

What? Someone *NEW* to Stampin' Up! ?? Was the first thing that went through my mind! As I, of course, assume there couldn't possibly be people out there that don't know how amazing Stampin' Up! truly is!! lol.

All kidding aside, the Last Chance List is so important, because when Stampin' Up! retires stamp sets, they will never be able to be purchased new again. You see Stampin' Up! designs and makes - yes MAKES - their own stamp sets. That is why they are so cool, exclusive and must haves :) You can't go to your local crafting store, or scrapbooking store and find Stampin' Up! stamp sets, inks, papers and so much more - you just can't! It is also what makes my job so awesome - my friends and customers know that I am the person they need to come to for the latest in Stampin' Up! products - I am your hook up :) They also love love love it when I run amazing specials!! (Stay tuned as I have a few each month!)

So as an ode to Christina, I will make my next few posts about some of the awesome Stamp Sets and In Colours that are retiring on June 30th, 2009. I put orders in ALL the time - so just call me 514-603-4594 or send me an email when you see something you "must have" before it retires for good. Oh and yes of course, you can add anything else from the Stampin' Up! catalogues to your order as well!!

This card is made with the stamp set Pretty Amazing that is retiring June 30th.

Card Details:

Stamp Set: Pretty Amazing (retiring June 30th)

Card Stock: Baha Breeze (retiring June 30th), Chocolate Chip, Whisper White

Ink: Baha Breeze (retiring June 30th), Tangerine Tango (retiring June 30th), Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery

Ribbon: Valet Ribbon (retiring)

Hope it inspires you today!
